Cinderella with Lillie.

Good morning it is Thursday.

Yesterday I got to take Lillie the the 5th Avenue Theater in Seattle to see Cinderella.  That's right, just me and Lillie.    Maren planed it out that way because there was just no good day for the whole family to go, and at the price of the tickets, if the boys didn't want to go, we weren't going to force the issue.  And for Maren it was a work day.  
 Showing up at the 5th Ave.  Lillie didn't feel like dressing in a Cinderella dress (not that she didn't have her own flair), but I can tell you that many little girls did!  There were plenty of little Cinderellas all over the place.
 And we were on the floor level!
 At intermission we wandered up to check out the orchestra pit.  This glass slipper was the huge screen saver for the theater.  The play was great.  It stuck to the story that all the kids know very well without loosing its own identity.  That's right, I should be a judge on American Idol.
Afterwards we wandered over to Pacific Place for an early dinner.  We got to pass by hundreds of freezing folks lined up outside of the Nike store as they were camping out for the release of the Retro Nike Jordans.  Watching the news this morning there were even fights and police called in at Southcenter mall as the Retro Jordan crowd was getting a little fighty.  Once into the convention center where I parked the van, Lillie decided to take an extra trip up and down the escalator...with all the lights around it was a pretty fun ride.

See you tomorrow.

Too cool! It looks like you had great seats, and you enjoyed it every bit as much as Lillie did ;) Hope she's feeling better.
